“I don’t expect Romney to win Illinois.”
Zero up by 13 to 17 percent: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/il/illinois_romney_vs_obama-2955.html
If I were Romney I would do a campaign stop, or send Ryan, in central ilinois. It could not hurt. It would make into the Iowas news market. Maybe Peoria.
Other thing, I really don’t have much faith in Real Crappy politics,
Look again. Check the date of O’s numbers for IL. They are a month old! Sept. 4-10. Why don’t they have more recent figures?
